St. Joseph's Prep quarterback Jack Clements, who worked at ironing out the kinks in his game during the team's disappointing 1-3 start, earned his stripes in a big way Friday night against bitter rival La Salle. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior, who filled in at times down the stretch last year, completed 15 of 19 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown as the No. 7-ranked Hawks rallied late for a 35-31 triumph over the No. 1 Explorers. "I was proud of him," Prep coach Gabe Infante said.

A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

Even after a stellar opening performance, La Salle's Kyle Shurmur wanted to talk about the things he needed to improve on as a quarterback moving forward. "Numbers are numbers," the 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior said after throwing for 338 yards and four touchdowns in Friday's night's 29-7 triumph over host North Penn in Lansdale. "We can't stall on drives like we did at times. That's on me. " Shurmur, who is ticketed for Vanderbilt, connected on 23 of 36 attempts. In the first half, he was 16 for 22 for 225 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

NEW YORK - John Giannini has insisted that the margin for error for his La Salle team in the Atlantic 10 is minuscule. In Fordham's overstuffed gym in the Bronx Saturday, he was proven right.

The win dropped La Salle behind Dayton, which hosted UMass on Saturday night, in the Atlantic Ten standings.

Bill Wasylenko never set out to become the archivist for the La Salle football team. He never expected to have much to do with La Salle at all after graduating in 1969. When he went to a football game at Plymouth Whitemarsh with his two young sons on Labor Day weekend of 2001, it was the first time he had seen the Explorers play in more than 30 years. He was almost fearful he'd run into some of his old classmates. Then the team came to the sidelines, the band played the alma mater, and "all of a sudden, warm feelings came back," Wasylenko said.

NEW YORK - It was only a year ago that La Salle, coming off a berth in the 2013 NCAA Sweet 16, was arguably the most popular team at the Atlantic 10 Conference basketball media day. "Yeah, I used to be famous," coach John Giannini said at Tuesday's media day at the Barclays Center. This year, Giannini might prefer to forget about last season's 15-16 finish despite the fact that the Explorers returned most of their regulars from that NCAA team. But he likes that his current seniors started working toward the 2014-15 season just a few days after their season ended in the A-10 tournament.

He and his students traveled from their Olney campus to the Last Frontier during six summers starting in the 1960s.

La Salle is riding a big wave of momentum after battling back from a 17-point deficit and knocking off fellow juggernaut Archbishop Wood, 35-31, last week in a thriller. After losing three of four games against out-of-state powers, St. Joseph's Prep gained a much-needed boost with a 49-28 romp over Malvern Prep. That sets the stage for the highly anticipated Catholic League Class AAAA opener between the Explorers and Hawks at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Plymouth Whitemarsh. An overflow crowd is expected.

TAKING OVER a Catholic League baseball program coming off a Class AAAA state championship, its second in three seasons, and replacing a long-time head coach can certainly be daunting. But, so can becoming a first-time teacher. Such is the case for La Salle High's new baseball coach Kyle Werman. "There were definitely some nerves," Werman said with a chuckle via phone yesterday. "As an athlete you can always reflect back on your experiences on the field and that's how I kind of felt Day 1 getting thrown into it. " Yesterday, La Salle announced in a statement that Werman would succeed Joe Parisi, who remains a teacher and athletic director, but retired from coaching after 28 seasons following last year's state title run.

Late in Week 4, when starting quarterback Connor O'Keefe went down with an injury and backup Matt Szczypiorski was unavailable for the same reason, Central Bucks East had no choice but to hand the reins to an emergency signal-caller. With that, Jack Lamb, previously a full-time inside linebacker and part-time running back for the Patriots, went under center for the first time since he was an eighth-grader at Holicong Middle School. "I was a little bit rusty at first, but I'm improving with each week," the 6-foot, 200-pound junior said.
